My house is roughly 2 years old. I notice that when I step on some
sections of the carpetted floor, it makes crackling noise - esp if I
haven't setpped into a room in a while and if I walk through it now.
The noise issue is more so during winter. I also hear pops sometimes
behind walls and above ceilings. Should I be worried? or is it normal
process of framings going through expansion contraction process.
Can you tell what is sub floor? Plywood, OSB? How is it fastened to the
joist? Nail from nail gun? Screw and adhesive(preferred)? Are you
controlling humidity in the house in winter? My house is 11 year old,
no squeaky floor on 3 levels.
It is a cookie cutter house and had a one year warranty. I guess the
floor is plywood fastened with nails (No glue - do they even use glue
in fast paced housing constructions?). We have a humidifier attached to
